”The libraries can´t keep weeding out” a discourse analysis of the Tintin debate (English)
Abstract [en]

Should libraries first and foremost be a source of free information where the citizens can find whatever information they want, or do the librarians have a responsibility for what kind of works they present to people on their shelves? A wild debate broke out in Swedish media in September 2012, after the artistic leader of Kulturhuset in Stockholm; Behrang Miri decided to weed out all the Tintin albums from the children´s library Tiotretton. He wanted to start a debate on stereotypes in children´s fiction, and what damage they do to children who face them. The purpose of the thesis is to carry out a discourse analysis of this media debate, and to identify the different views that are expressed on the democratic mission of the libraries, what media they should present. The method and theory is based on the discourse theory of Ernesto Laclau and Chantal Mouffe and their concepts are used to arrange the analysis around certain themes that build up two different discourses; “Freedom of information discourse” and the “Weeding out discourse”. The two main questions are: What views of the public libraries selection of works are expressed in the Tintin debate in Tiotretton, and how do the views relate to each other? What concepts are specific for the debate, and what meanings do they get in these different views? In the concluding chapter I discuss which consequences these opposing opinions can have for the future selection processes of the library.
